    Hopefully the Aussies can help me here. Do all 3B's have the same bellhousings or is the Coaster/Dyna bellhousing different from a 'Cruiser?

    I know I have two different bellhousings for the 3B. Same bolt patern on both ends but one has a cross member bracket and one does not. Also those out of the 42's don't have the tack sensor.

    I know, not what you are looking for... :)

    are you sure that the one with the frame mounts on it is for a 3B? the only one i have seen like that is the 77-78 B series engine BJ40...
    cheers

    Basically what I need to know is when I get my 3B down here it will be from a Dyna or a Coaster. I'm going to the wrecker tomorrow to get an H41 because the Dyna tranny I'm told is not 'Cruiser compatible. When I get the tranny, should I also get the 3B bellhousing? I assume the "B" and "3B" bellhousings have the same bolt pattern if that's what the tranny ends up coming from.

    You are correct Wayne. My 78 that I swapped in a 3B using the B housing is the one with the cross member..
